Senate finishes season
Student Senate passed nine of the 10 pieces of legislation it handled during its regular weekly meeting Monday.
One of the resolutions voiced support for a Wisconsin state bill that calls for an additional student on the Board of Regents and changes the process in which students are selected.
Currently, just one student sits on the Board of Regents and that student is selected by the state’s governor. Under the proposed legislation, two students, one traditional and one non-traditional, would sit on the board.
“We definitely want to get more student representation,” said freshman Sarah Schuh, director of the Intergovernmental Affairs Commission.
Schuh introduced the resolution Monday at what was the last regular Senate meeting of the semester.
Another resolution that passed supports a $1 increase in student transportation fees to $18 for additional “tripper” buses which follow the primary bus to pick up students that don’t fit on the first bus.
